Usually, the size, thickness, and firmness are what we consider in choosing the right loft bed mattresses. But with the added loft element, you need to also think about safety and headroom. There should be at least 30 inches of space between the top of the loft bed mattress and the ceiling. This gives enough space for most sleepers to sit upright and move safely.
For young children, we highly recommend a good quality low profile mattress from 5” to 8” tall. This is to maximize safety rail height for the top loft. The thinner the mattress is, the more guardrail space left over on most low loft bed models.
